: Yes, a good article. But the part I found most interesting was its review of the evolution of modern novel-writing techniques. It says more experimental techniques are finding their way into mainstream novels as a way to tell stories better. It has led to new types of popular novels like Doc Murdock's "Psalm for Cock Robin" which uses dual protagonists that exist within one head and his "My Vietnam War" that uses first, second, and third person to represent a soldier’s mind spiraling down into PTSD (both books are advertised at the bottom of this page).
Interestingly, the article also points out that these modern novelists are almost always products of MFA creative writing programs (or even, as in the case of Dr. Murdock, PhD creative writing programs). The article describes how explorations in narrative style are finally making their way out of university classrooms and into popular literature.
